The EU takes the credit for Vitamin C !

This is not quite as good as "Comrade Stalin invented the internal combustion engine", which is my all time favourite piece of political bullshit, but its not so far off. Today in the European Parliament, an exhibition about famous Hungarians has gone up, on the ground floor, near the sandwich bar and the statue of an anorexic horse with a star on its back.

Its not a particularly big exhibition, and it misses out my pal from the parliament press room who once played a camp guard in Escape to Victory, but it is interesting enough.

But I think that claiming to have "invented vitamin C" is pushing it a bit far. Maybe it is a mistake - maybe it is not.

The European Commission claims that the EU has maintained peace in Europe since 1945, which another total piece of bullshit, although lots of people in the EU institutions do actually buy into this. Just like lots of Soviet kids grew up believing that Comrade Stalin invented the internal combustion engine....

Drinking with murderers

There I was, enjoying a beer in the sunshine with a few good friends in Place de Luxembourg, when the child-murderers arrived.

I get fed up with the way that normally sensible people defend these vermin - maybe it is done out of fear - I don't know. One otherwise sensible journalist actually said to me, "I don't think that there is really a link between Sinn Fein and the IRA".

I once asked Lord Tebbit how he would feel if he saw Gerry Adams or Martin McGuiness in central lobby. He replied "I can only hope that there is a particularly hot corner of Hell reserved for them".

I thought this picture might serve as a reminder, as it appears that one is needed, of how Sinn Fein / IRA carry out their political campaigns. It shows the body of a baby being carried away from the scene of one of their bombings.

Those who like to make themselves feel good by believing that there is no link between Sinn Fein and the IRA might find the following of interest
